Our expertise by industry

  • Automotive

    Full speed ahead

    The automotive industry faces two main areas of tension: The need for innovation and the ongoing drive for internationalisation.

    Your industry is increasingly confronted with bottlenecks in important raw materials. A stable supply chain is therefore all the more important. Rising and fluctuating raw material prices as well as production stoppages are a constant companion. Cybercrime is becoming a burning issue for your industry due to increasing mechanisation. In addition, the growing demand for electric cars is affecting the entire industry. Partner® helps you to use these challenges to your company's advantage.

    At Partner®, we offer first-class legal advice across the entire spectrum of business law. Having advised OEMs, suppliers and dealers for many years, we know what matters in the automotive industry. Partner® accompanies you through the entire life cycle of your company along the entire value chain, be it joint venture, licensing and supply agreements, patenting and licensing, restructuring, transactions or exits.

    We support you with sound contract drafting to protect your business from failures, whether in production or in the supply chain. Partner® navigates your company to its destination in a practical and secure manner.

    Power Mode
